The "social distance" stuff was arbitrary at best. Not to mention, they never had an eye protection mandate. Since you can get infected by viruses through your eyes, only covering your mouth and nose with a piece of ill fitting cloth and leaving the eye completely unprotected was never serious.

Wasn’t based on clear science.

Ya think?

The virus is real, but the other 97% has been raw crowd control politics.

You can get a lot of viruses through touching infected surfaces and/or people and then touching yourself, particularly your face. That’s the primary mode of transmission from viral pink eye to Ebola. But, touch generally isn’t a robust mode of transmission for respiratory viruses and this one is no different.

That's really what it was all about. Putting covid policies in place to make Trump look bad, to destroy the best economy he helped bring about and to ultimately get him out of office.

They were all obsessed with hating him. Unprecedented what they did (& continued to do) to him, and his supporters.

When they Yuts don’t take no learning in science, this is what you get. Previously 3 foot distance was fine so they doubled it. I’m sure they received more than a participation award.

It was probably easier for globalist elites to weaponize possible widespread vitamin D3 deficiency evidenced by COVID-19 in my non-medical opinion, than it is to continue beating dead horse with tired, politically correct global warming.

And speaking of politically correct global warming...

Wait, it should have been 7 feet? Or 5 feet?

I always wondered about the science behind the magical 6 feet.

I think a 528 ft distance would work rather well.

Why hasn’t a breathalyzer been developed?

Chew on this:

There is a lot of REAL science indicating that COVID—like cruise ship noroviruses—is spread primarily be fecal to oral transmission.

Let that sink in.

Remember about a year ago when there were a few quickly buried stories about communities in the New England states that were going to start testing sewerage for COVID?

Let that sink in.

Now consider this: In many States (Pennsylvania and Ohio for sure) the mask mandates are explicit that those in restaurants MUST wear a mask INTO THE RESTROOM where of course that cloth will absorb all toilet odors and other zhit.

Let that sink in.

Then the patron MUST wear the zhit laden mask back into the restaurant so that with every exhale the patrons innocently eating pancakes can get a dose of the restroom zhit.

Let that sink in.

Still hungry?

“FauXi off” is the best reply.

Or “Go FauXi yourself”.

I thought Social Distancing was invented by Nuns and Priests at Catholic School dances. A long long time ago.
